Locating the Leak Source of an Industrial Roof Leak
An industrial emergency roof repair involves accurately locating
the source of the leak inside the building. On Industrial roofs,
this requires the use of flashlights, entering ceiling spaces or
inspecting the undersides of decking with the use of ladders or
a scissor lift. The three main types of decking are concrete, wood
and corrugated steel. When an emergency roof repair is required
the actual source of the roof leak can be several metres away from
the interior signs of leakage. Water will run several meters across
steel corrugations until it finds a whole in the deck, it will also
run across concrete and drip down inside where the pre-cast slabs
As emergency roof repair experts, Baystone Industrial Roofing
can locate the damaged area(s) and stop the leak at its source.
There may be two roof systems retro-fitted on the building which
means water runs between the systems before it hits the deck and
runs further, some buildings have vapour barriers or have been re-saturated
which will also cause the water to run several metres before finding
a whole in the decking and dripping down inside the building. All
these aspects have to be taken into consideration when looking for
the true source of a roof leak.
The leak source may be a split flashing at the roof perimeter or
from one of the many roof protrusions including drains, roof mounted
equipment, skylights or chimneys etc. Other sources can be windows,
brickwork, metal cladding or coping, fractures in the membrane or
broken pressure ridges due to age or a simple puncture in the roof
caused by a heavy object. These problems mostly occur on tar and
gravel roofs. We also have vast experience at fixing EPDM and Modified
Bitumen Membrane Roof Systems.
